Mary Janes

MARY JANE

The women shoes worn in the 60’s (fun fact: in the 20’s by kids), are back in fashion! Our icon Twiggy is considered to be the trendsetter back then. So they could be the shoes you would associate to your grand mum. Well, times changed. It’s incredible how quickly they were spread all over the streets. Still there’s a difference to then: It’s all about strong colours and satin. Take a look at our professionals and do it their way.

My personal favorite is Chiara’s pair by Valentino:

Friday Favorites, Derek Lam

Derek Lam for this time. A collection inspired by the 70ties. Designers in general seem to get a lot of inspiration from the 70ties these past few seasons. What made me want to pick this look for this week? I’ll start from the bottom: the wide camel crepe pants were probably the main reason. The fact that they left out the belt on purpose makes me love it. Less is more, as they say. They are the pants you would put in the category ‘Parisian fashion’. This simple blouse almost had to be white. Guess the stylists wanted to be on the safe side, well done. Last but not least, the sunnies. Round frame sunglasses are the trendiest ! He actually shares this opinion with a few designers. Here some others:

3 trendy sunglasses you should consider for summer

If you are in the position of wanting to get some new sunnies but don’t really know which pair you should go with, Laura is going to help you with that one. You’re welcome!
No let’s be serious now and face the situation. You’re willing to invest a bit of money in a designer pair? That’s what I personally would do for many reasons. First of all a pair of designer sunglasses is probably one of few things which can be afforded by almost everyone if chosen wisely. Not as other designer accessories or clothes.. Second thing is that sunglasses influence your look more than you could ever imagine. Especially on a hot summer day on which you are happy to wear as less as possible, they play the part of this little eyecatcher you want to be proud of. My last point concerns, as silly as it sounds, actually your health! You can be sure that a good pair will certainly protect your eyes from damaging UV rays. Whereas cheap sunglasses from discount stores barely will.

Here are my current favorites

1. Dior so Real

Dior So real sunnies

They might be the sunglasses of the fashion scene right now everyone is wearing. I could show you tons of pictures in which influential people got spotted with them. One on the top with pop starlet Rihanna.

2. Prada Cinema
